Nico Rosberg dominates Malaysian GP first practice

Mercedes’ Formula One (F1) driver Nico Rosberg was firing on all cylinders at the first practice session of the Malaysian Grand Prix, setting the fastest time in the process.

Rosberg clocked one minute and 40.124 seconds, ahead of Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettal at the Sepang Formula Circuit.

Meanwhile, his teammate Lewis Hamilton, was forced to end the session after the fourth lap, when he was told to pull out of the circuit after a ‘clock’ was reportedly heard at the rear of his WO6.

“There is a hardware problem that we need to go and fix, so we don’t know exactly what we are going to do yet. We need to do some investigations in the next few minutes to decide what we are going to do for P2.” Mercedes’ Executive Director Paddy Lowe told Ted Kravitz

McLaren’s Fernando Alonso, who finally made a return to the vehicle since his crash in Barcelona, finished 14th after completing 20 laps in 90 minutes. Jenson Button on the other hand, finished 17th in the second MP4-30, with a time that was only slightly better than the two drivers from Manor Marussia.
